Tony Veitch ‘clears his name’
In August last year Tony Veitch indicated he wanted to clear his name… today he has pleaded guilty to “injuring his ex-partner with reckless disregard”, in what was likely to be a plea bargain, the other assault charges were dropped.
I expect that supporters of Tony Vietch will feel vindicated in their support of him, clearly injuring with disregard rather than being convicted of assault makes him a model citizen and fantastic role model.
No doubt had Mr Veitch had different colour skin and lived out in South Auckland he wouldn’t have got off so likely, nor would he have had high profile ‘celebraties’ coming out in support of him either. I guess Tony’s just lucky he’s white and famous.
Looking forward to seeing the morally convoluted arguments from his supporters justifying his innocence, and pushing for him to return to his previous job. Good luck there, everyone can now see he is a liar and someone prone to lashing out and unable to control his anger. What’s more this is someone who has consistently avoided accepting responsibilities for his actions, he deserves no sympathy or support.
